From the darkness, UADA (meaning haunted in latin) emerges breathing the spirit of the original 90’s Black Metal wave. Since 2014, this Portland, Oregon four-piece has used a unique approach to combine raw black metal and spectral melodies.
April 8th 2016 manifested the release of their debut album “Devoid of Light”, it rekindles a flame and resurrects spirits from the past in pure blackness. Self-recorded by the band & then mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust). It features the artwork of Kris Verwimp and band photography by Peter Beste.
“Uada is one of the most interesting & exciting bands coming out of Portland these days” – John Haughm (AGALLOCH)
"dark waves of guitar melody that sweep through the music like a winter gale (and sometimes drift like a grave-side mist)" - NO CLEAN SINGING
"diabolical and deep, like a better-informed and more melodic version of De Mysteriis-era Mayhem. The result scratches the infernal itch perfectly, and will hopefully be embrace by both old- and new-schoolers alike." - METALSUCKS
